Though it's not the most technically or narratively proficient piece, the film's compelling subjects can't help but inspire, even if we're not always privy to what truly drives them or how their family lives have been affected.

You walk out of Beyond the Call admiring these humanitarians but not the movie about them -- unless you like films with lots of hugging.

The scenery is marvelous, but Belic is a bit too admiring of his subjects.

The film is a pointed lesson in 'every little bit helps.'

It's impossible not to admire the protags' can-do spirit.

You walk away wishing the filmmaker had channeled the guts he showed in crossing dangerous borders with his subjects into asking them tough and insightful questions

A frustrating and frequently monotonous account, a public-relations presentation that only occasionally reveals the hits (or misses) of their missions.

An extremely inspiring film that is also hilarious, exciting and heartwrenching.

September 18, 2007 Full Review Source: Cinematical

Adrian Belic's straightforward film shows the men in action and allows them to tell -- in their salty, no-B.S. way -- their own stories of how and why they do what they do.

The construction of this documentary could have used the kind of firm hand that these three self-professed Don Quixote's might have provided
